WT159 Thinking Of You!!!


Happy Day!!! Hope you are having a good one....

The weather here in the South is really warming up now and that makes me very happy - can you tell, my card is bright and cheerful?!?

When I saw today's "Way to Use it" challenge - it's about spraying (pls. find out more on SCS) I had to use Beate's Marker Misting Technique!!!

I don't recall trying it before - so I knew it would be perfect for this challenge...

Not only did I use the Misting Sprayer I also used the best smelling stuff in town - which is a Shimmer
Body and Hair Spray from Bath and Body Works!!!

I know you probably think I'm bananas, but I thought it would look great - which it does - unfortunately my camera does not pick up the beauty of the shimmer..., but it smells super good - LOL!!!

Let me start at the beginning - I used Whisper White as my base. I used Real Red and Old Olive Markers and colored the image from the "Essence of Love" Set. Then I used the Yoyo Yellow Reinker and touched the flower parts with the "Fantastix" coloring tool or you could use the Aqua Brush without water in it.

After coloring everything I used my Misting bottle and held my stamp a little further away and
sprayed water on it!!! I love the result a lot!!! I had to let it dry just for a minute and then placed it onto Real Red CS. Then I sprayed the yummy Shimmer Mist on it and added some more Dazzling Diamond Glitter. I raised this panel with Stampin Dimensionals.

The wonderful Ribbon is from Micheal's. The sentiment is also from the same set and I inked it Real Red. Of course I had to add my small red Rhinestone Brads from SU - VOILA!!! ~TFL~

Have to run and bring my dog "Rico" to the Vet really quick for his shots and then I'll have the BLOG CANDY ready!!! So don't forget to stop by again......see ya

What a gorgeous card. Quick question...Does the Shimmer Mist have a bit of adhesive in it to hold the Dazzling Diamond glitter or did you add the glitter with something else?

Thanks for the great inspiration - Regina Davis (davisfamily4930@comcast.net)

Silke, this is just gorgeous! I absolutely love the color red, but it's not always so easy to use on cards. Sometimes it hurts my eyes in the wrong combo. This is perfect though. Every time I see you use this stamp I want to buy it, but I'm trying to refrain from spending. I just remind myself that YOU can make ANYTHING look fabulous. I'll just stamp (and color) vicariously through you! Ha, Ha.
